Zacha would be a good pick up depending on what we send. Versatile player with upside still   

Agreed. 6’3” 210 LBS, .5 pts/Game Center with 50% face win percentage. 
 

perfect fit if we are buyers, let’s hope we could get him for a good price.

Even just a hockey trade. Maybe we aren’t buyers or sellers. We shouldn’t be selling the farm regardless of where we finish but a shake up for sure

I’d do zacha + for Garland.

 

He’s 25 on a 2.5million salary but he is a RFA.

 

I like Garland and wouldn’t mind his size if we didn’t already have Hughes Petterson and Hoglander but that’s too many small guys IMO. 
 

if this rumor is true I’m glad they are targeting another center. D is also a need though.

Yah very true, he’s Probly a better fit than Garland and almost produces as much offense. At 24 years old he’d be a good fit.

Even Garland for Zacha straight up isn't terrible considering we save a couple Million in salary. Which means we can spend it on a Motte or Hamonic type player. If we could do Garland and Dickinson for Zacha and Smith that would be fine by me, and free up some good money.

The Canucks only save money this year.  Zacha is a RFA with arbitration rights this summer.  His new contract will be a raise from this current cap hit.  He might well make closer to what Garland is making.

 

I'm not against acquiring Zacha, including if the deal involves Garland, but I would not do it one-for-one. 

 

Last season was Zacha's best and he was on a 55+ point pace.  Garland was on a 65+ point pace.  They're both having less productive years but IMHO, Garland is the superior player even if there is an argument that Zacha may be a better fit.

Zacha can do much more than Garland.  He can play centre or wing, can play on the PP and is a very good penalty killer.  Plus he’s about a foot taller than Garland.

 

Garland may be a little better scorer but Zacha is the better player overall. Zacha for Garland straight up would be a good trade for Vancouver.  If JR can somehow expand the trade and get the local boy Bahl included as well that would be big for Vancouver.

I'm a Hoglnder fan but I'd trade him before Garland especially if the return was the same or better. 

Does not make sense to trade Hoglander unless it's part of a package for like a legit top-4 D-man.

 

Hoglander ought to be a cost-controlled asset for us for many years.

Yeah it would be  trade Zacha 25, 6'3 -- GP 50 - ( 17 G )last season-- Garland 26, 5'10..

I would make the trade bigger body- Basic same point totals in last 3 seasons...Zacha RFA this summer will demand 4.5 -- 4.9 million

Garland is locked up through his prime and is ready to go full St Louis as much as I love me some Hog Garland is literally his cieling and only getting better.
